When I first thought about collecting the autographs of my fellow medical bloggers attending the BWE in Las Vegas, I started out with this small quilt. I wanted a quilt with minimal or no white with neutral colors that might look okay in most decors. I went with blues and browns. This quilt is 22.5 in square, machine pieced and hand quilted.
Here is the back with the quilt label.
I thought I would be able to find pens/ink that would work on the darker colors. As you can see from my samples here, I was wrong. I wrote on several of the fabrics, then washed the samples. All the inks are “permanent” and “acid-free”
